Jon L. Hagler
 The Hagler Institute is particularly indebted to Jon Hagler ’58 , a longtime supporter of Texas A&M and co-chair of the Vision 2020 strategic plan. Jon understood the transformative impact of the Institute and committed $20 million to endow the Institute that now bears his name. Thanks to Jon Hagler’s significant gift, the Hagler Institute for Advanced Study is now a permanent part of Texas A&M University. Each year through perpetuity, the Hagler Institute will bring the finest scholars in the world to Texas A&M for up to twelve months each to collaborate on research with our faculty and students and share their knowledge in special presentations and symposiums. The Institute helps to put Texas A&M University on a perpetual upward path of excellence. I invite you to read the Texas A&M Foundation’s “Great Minds” article about Jon Hagler and to watch the brief-but-splendid video interview with one of Texas A&M’s leading benefactors.
